The House of the Cypress Trees 
by Elena Mikalsen

Julia Ramos is in Italy to find her birth mother, but everything goes wrong as she rescues an abused dog, gets evicted from her apartment and has to rely on a man who nearly runs her over to give her a ride to Tuscany.

Sparks fly as the couple navigates adventures around Italy and family troubles.

The Language of Divorce
by Leanne Treese

Will and Hannah Abbott have a seemingly perfect marriage but discontent lurks beneath the surface. When they independently seek legal advice, conflict escalates and the Abbotts unwittingly find themselves the center of public attention. With stress and fees rising, they agree to appear on a reality show for divorcing couples. Can their love survive their past?    

For more information, please visit Leanne's website.  

Hunting the Devil
by Suanne Schafer

Part medical procedural, part global political thriller, part justice-seeking novel, and part fractured romance, Hunting the Devil follows a doctor embroiled in the Rwandan genocide.

When Dr. Jessica Hemings’s children are murdered, she doggedly tracks their killer. War changes Jessica’s definition of humanity and, ultimately, what it means to be human.
